Top 10 Hardest Kirby Bosses


The Top Ten

1 Marx Soul - Kirby Super Star Ultra

My goodness, this boss is a pain. Galacta Knight, though tough, is at least predictable. He has clear, consistent patterns that, through practice, can be learned and perfected. Marx Soul, on the other hand, is purely random. He's unpredictable, not to mention an incredibly hard hitter, making him both frustratingly difficult and very rewarding. Galacta weeds out the boys from the men, and Marx Soul weeds out the slightly more manly from the others.

I HATE THIS GUY. You go through The True Arena to get to him. He attacks like CRAZY. He gives you weak abilities. And then there's the scene that unfolds at the end (I hate that scream. )

You aren't guaranteed to even start the battle at full health, all his attacks go through guard, comes right after another hard boss, don't have much choice of abilities (and his drops are incredibly risky to get hits with) and losing is Game Over. Sounds about right.

Master hand should be number 1

2 Galacta Knight - Kirby Super Star Ultra

Whoever thinks Marx Soul is harder than Galacta was really lucky on the Galacta fight, however others, others weren't, this guy can kill you in just about five hits with his light attacks, everything he has is hard to dodge, if you get to close, he'll unleash a inescapable combo that will take about half of your life away. You never know what's coming next, your only hope is either Yo-yo for the invincibility or Plasma for the charge shot, even then you'll have a hard time if he uses his good attacks, which are almost all of them.

THIS should be #1, no this IS #1! I hate this guy look up top 10 hardest kirby bosses on youtube. This guy has devastating attacks, he moves around the arena, he has a ton of health! Oh and if you have stone, he can send helpers and if you are in rock formation you WILL take damage and probably lose your power-up. I HATE MS but this is the reason I died to him in the TA! Oh and I was using the kirby perspective because you can heal using meta knight. :D - davehahn

Galacta Knight is actually quite easy if you play as Meta Knight. With Kirby, he's way harder, probably because he was probably designed for Meta Knight. He has all sorts of attacks, but his beam, fire and minions are quite easy. His other attacks are very hard though. And if you lose on the True Arena, you have to beat the over bosses all over again.

InB4 everyone starts out over morpho knight. - Darktail_of_FireClan

3 Zero - Kirby's Dreamland 3

This thing doesn't just act strong, according to half the people I told about 0, it also LOOKS disturbing. It shoots blood out of openings in itself (granted the game is old so the blood looks more like fireballs) and if you get the bad ending it continues to exist and you have to start over and get the good ending. THIS THING IS VERY POWERFUL not only because it's a final boss but because it's a form of dark matter. DARK MATTER TAKES SO MANY FORMS AND CAN POSSES BEINGS such as pon and con, acro, ado, etc. 0 even reincarnates and takes the form of 02. This is one of the worst bosses in Kirby. It DEFINITELY belongs on this list.

Hell yeah! First, Dark Matter softens you up with a small challenge, then comes the 2 form nightmare! His attacks are tricky to dodge and do a huge amount of damage!

This thing is a form of dark matter. That's all I need to say.

He not just op he’s PURE EVIL

4 Magolor Soul - Kirby's Return to Dreamland

In the true arena, he is quite easy. However, the extra mode, not so much. You have lower health. I got a game over when I had my brother (kirby master just like me) and we both had spark!

This boss wouldn't be too hard if it wasn't for the fact that it had so many phases, even more if including Landia and the Shooting Segment. Despite this, I like the boss. It adds a much needed edge to the story and boosts the challenge factor - as well as the satisfaction you can get from beating it.

My best friend had this game and keeps telling me how hard he is. He flips the screen, uses super abilities, an it's such a pain to fight bosses with more forms like this.

If you play The True Arena, use Tornado

5 Star Dream Soul OS - Planet Robobot

Very hard, not only do you have the original 3 phases, but a 4th aND final phase. In which it is similar to the Nova battle in Kirby super star. But as a 3d back and forth action. He will try to crush you, and when you finally defeat him you have to dodge 3 laser sequences where even one hit will kill you. It took me 5 hours to beat him. I had to use stone kirby for invicualblity in order to win. To me it is the hardest kirby battle of all time and it so happens to be in the hardest true arena of all time.

Planet Robobot wasn't a hard game. Go through the Arena pretty quickly. Hit the true arena...what the HECK?! Everything just got 100X more difficult! And this guy is no exception! I mean...the dude has laser beams that can kill you in one hit. And even when he dies, he can kill you. What the heck, man?!

This boss is incredibly hard to take down, due to its FOUR phases and some of its attacks covers 3/4 of the screen, not to mention the FATAL Error attack which is almost impossible to dodge, I managed twice to survive the ordeal though...I beat it with Archer finally!

Absurdly difficult

6 Dark Mind - Kirby and the Amazing Mirror

He has a lot of phases, and in the middle of those phases you go in a mini-dungeon. He's like a True Arena. But he's only one boss.

The number of phases is really annoying, and it takes a huge amount of time to beat Dark Mind. And the master sword deals very small damage to him

I beat Marx Soul, Galactica Knight, and Zero all on the first try. This guy took me an uncountable amount of tries, even though there were 4 of me.

7 Zero Two - Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

ZERO TWO IS EPIC AND ADORABLE! His theme is EPIC he is EPIC dark matter is EPIC his design is EPIC the battle is EPIC plus he has some tricky attacks for beginners when I first fought him I was dying 54 times in a row. But I am used to his fight. But I simply ADORED this battle! ( because how ADORABLE ZERO TWO is) again how could you hate that face of his! That is my opinion

Well let's see I am obsessed with the dark matters. But I am glued to the awsomeness of zero twos battle. And the most EPIC boss theme EVER! This is my opinion I think he should have been rated number one along with zero. Plus I think zero two has an awesome design. I am in love with zero two for some reason but is he not EPIC. How could you hate that face of his!

Honestly, I didn't really find him too hard. Heck, Miracle Matter was harder to me. Regardless, still a good boss nonetheless. - Garythesnail

Huh, thought I would have seen more Zero Two Darling in the Franxx comments around here. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

8 Nightmare - Kirby's Adventure

This is so hard! I haven't even defeated his first form!

I only consider the first phase hard. And NOT the gba version, but the NES version. He has so much health you are put under a time limit to beat him!

The first form is easy a hell, But when it comes to that hard second form..

No time limit in nes remix 2

9 HR-D3 - Kirby's Return to Dreamland

You're standing at the end of the final phase against Metal General...or so you thought. Suddenly, this creature bursts out of the background and assaults you, starting a 3rd phase. The worst part is that you can only hit his hand and his drill, which only come out when he's attacking. The worst attacks for the 3rd phase are the rocket storm and the hand spin. The best attacks are probably the eye laser and when he tries to smash you with his hands. Once you kill him, he jumps and starts a 4th phase, and uses giant lasers and bouncing attacks. Suddenly, the hand smash is a lot more difficult. It took me lots of tries to beat him.

What this guy was really easy for me but that is just my opinion

HR-D3...I can't say I remember that one. You mean the Metal General, right? - Garythesnail

Add in EX and bam! - NamiKazePants08

10 Meta Knight - Kirby's Epic Yarn Meta Knight - Kirby's Epic Yarn Meta Knight is a fictional character from the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory. He is one of Kirby's rivals, but occasionally teams up with the pink puffball to defeat a common enemy. Meta Knight is known for his powerful slashing attacks and flight in the Super Smash more.

He's actually pretty damn hard. He should have been the final boss because Yin-Yarn was easy. The whole game was easy. Except Meta Knight. Because of one thing. HOW THE CRAP DO YOU HIT HIM?

Once you get used to the game and the controls all of the bosses become pretty easy. I was working up to 100% but then I had to restart when I got my Wii you :(.

Definitely one of the hardest but I would say I can't even deal the first attack too easily but just king dedede is PAINFUL

Ireally like the music, and also the fights really fun.

The Contenders

11 Miracle Matter - Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

Miracle Matter is by far one of the hardest boss battles in the entire Kirby series. He has different abilities, one for each of Kirby's copy abilities in the game (Electric, Ice, Rock, Fire, Bomb, Needle, and Cutter). The only was you can damage him is with the copy ability that he is using (Which you have a VERY limited time to do). Not only that, but he takes very little damage when you attack him! There is a HUGE spike in difficulty when you get to this point of the game.

I have only beaten miracle matter once my entire life, VERY hard boss for the Kirby series and hardest Kirby boss ever

This guy... THIS ONE GUY is a pain in ass! Took me hours to beat him!

I need a plush of this

12 The True Arena - Kirby Super Star Ultra

How to beat any boss: get a friend and go on coop mode. Then have your friend be a wheelie. When Kirby is on wheelie he has an op star cannon that can be aimed in 8 directions and it does tons of damage. - FluffyBanana

I've come very close to finishing it, but this is quite tough. A tip for fellow players-USE THE HAMMER. - Garythesnail

Oh yeah this ONE boss! It's not like it's a short game or something! But also milky way wishes was also a difficult boss also!

This ain't a specific boss...

13 Kracko - Kirby's Adventure

But Kracko's my fave! HE'S PRACTICALLY STRONG! The drill-stuff from Triple Deluxe is the best thing about him though.

In Triple Deluxe he is so hard I consider him fought too early

Poor old Kracko. You always fight him...

Most annoying boss ever

14 Meta Knight - Kirby Squeak Squad Meta Knight - Kirby Squeak Squad Meta Knight is a fictional character from the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory. He is one of Kirby's rivals, but occasionally teams up with the pink puffball to defeat a common enemy. Meta Knight is known for his powerful slashing attacks and flight in the Super Smash more.

I have beat all bosses in kirby games I have played without losing health, except for meta knight. This guy is completely unpredictable.

Most meta knight battles give you a sword to duel with, I'm not talking about Dark meta knight or Galacta knight.He does not give you a sword to duel with.Only stars are your power if you don't have a power.He is easy with a power, but hard with out a power.

15 Dark Matter - Kirby's Dreamland 2

This boss will Kill you if you can't react fast enough. The first form charge at you sword first, generate dark energy to destroy you, and shoot laser beams from his sword. He can be quite difficult until you learn his pattern. But like other final bosses he has 2 forms to kill. Phase 2 is much much harder. He can shoot lasers from his eye semi-bullet hell style, ram into you at fast speeds, and shoot lightning bolts from his eye, and did I mention that this fight has a maximum time limit of 2m and 5s! And if you get Game Over You have to fight King Dedede again, as if he wasn't hard enough.

Blobs are very strong. Blobs that can possess and be a swordsman with more blobs at his back, are much stronger. After you die, you need to defeat dedede all over again. A utter pain in the neck.

It's like trying to kill a demon with a stick underwater. If you can't tell, that isn't fun. - Garythesnail

How does one beat this guy?

16 Necrodeus - Kirby Mass Attack

Right at the end he ate my Kirby :( rip Kirby number 7

This boss has 3 waves, the first 2 waves are destroying the hands.The first wave is throwing your'e kirbys at his hand points to destroy half his hand points.The next


17 Soul of Sectonia - Kirby: Triple Deluxe

She's kinda similar to Marx Soul. She kinda loses the surprise factor since Marx was really the first boss to ever come back as an undead boss at the end of True Arenas. In fact, Soul of Sectonia is basically the same thing as Marx Soul just relatively easier. The only thing difficult about Sectonia herself is phase 2 since she starts using four buds earlier

The first phase takes away your copy ability and the second destroys you. You can not even celebrate when you beat her because her scream makes you pity her

It's pretty tough when it first comes by, but though it is awesome, compared to Marx and Magolor's souls I found her relatively easy. - Garythesnail

God this boss took 3 years

18 Galacta Knight - Kirby's Return to Dreamland

I have tried battling him numerous times in True Arena. However, even with my sisters, I rarely win, and simply because of luck. He is POWERFUL... Especially with his tornado. How to dodge without a dash attack?

I consider this one harder than Super Star Ultra. He has a laser, mach tornadoes, multi slashes, the ability to guard, AND can make it rain swords!

Difficult. However, won on first try. Why? Just use spark.


19 Mecha Kracko - Kirby Squeak Squad

Unless you use UFO, Hi-Jump or Tornado, this boss is extremely difficult. He's hard to hit because he keeps moving around, and forces you to keep FLYING upwards. Half of the time, you don't have anywhere to stand. During the second part, he quickly moves to you and hits you with near-unavoidable lightning. Mecha Kracko is much harder than the final boss.

Oh my Nova, THIS. BOSS. This boss gave me hell in the Boss Rush AND normal game. When I first fought Mecha Kracko, I thought "Oh hey! It's Kracko! Heheh. Let's go! " And then I learned the terrifying truth; HE HAS 2 PHASES. The SECOND phase, he destroys the clouds below you and replaces them 3 seconds later. THIS KILLED ME SO MANY TIMES IT'S NOT EVEN FUNNY ANYMORE. Especially the fact that if you don't expect it, you'll fall to your instant death.
Now, most bosses are made easy by the ultimate ability of the game, Triple Star. Not Mecha Kracko. In fact, it's made even HARDER. Now, the clouds below you are destructable by fire. You know what else destroys the clouds? TRIPLE STAR! That means if you try to use an attack with Triple Star, you'll destroy the platform you stand on! HOORAY!

I cannot believe nobody put this guy! He's the only boss that has TWO phases, you can't use triple star, and at the beginning of the 2nd phase he take out the entire floor! - davehahn

Easiest Kirby game, hardest Kirby boss.

20 New Kracko - Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Toughest form of Kracko besides twin Kracko

21 Metal General - Return to Dream Land
22 Waddle Dee - Kirby's Dream Land Waddle Dee - Kirby's Dream Land

A god of death who's thirst for pink puff blood can not be quenched, he locks you with the sleep ability every 4th hit landed on him, he summons dio to freeze time AND cannot be damaged by hammer flip or other charged attacks. - VeryPissedOffCinnabon

This guy is basically chuck norris

He's such an evil, powerful guy. He wants revenge and threatens Kirby like hell. You totally can't inhale him then swallow! Right?...right? - Spicygarlic

Definitely the hardest boss in the Kirby series, no, the hardest boss in video games EVER. He’s fast, he has attacks that will kill you in, like, two or three hits and he has THOUSANDS of heath. The worst part, you ask? Well, he has 800 PHASES! He makes Galacta Knight look like Whispy hecking Woods. Marx Soul wouldn’t stand a chance against him. Magolor Soul and Soul of Sectonia can only dream of having that much power. Star Dream Soul OS is like a butterfly compared to him, and the actual butterfly boss is, well, if, like, sizes were power levels, Morpho Knight would be an ant compared to the blue whale that is Waddle Dee. Even Void Soul bows down to him as his new God. The God of a intense, soul-meltingly difficult boss battle. It took me a DECADE just to defeat him, and that’s only his regular form! Waddle Dee Soul is the most powerful boss, no, the most powerful THING in video game history. He has new attacks, millions of HP, 9000 phases, He’s harder than having to beat ...more

23 Masked Dedede - Kirby Super Star Ultra

A really awesome fight, AND really hard as well! He has a spin attack, shock waves, flamethrowers, missiles, and you're fighting in an electric cage!

Dedede ain't messing around this time! He's made sure all of his weaknesses were taken care of to have a better chance of beating Kirby!

The main issue with this boss the the cage. Reduces one of Kirby's best traits: mobility

Gotta use stone Kirby. Tried using hammer. Lost most of my health. - Darktail_of_FireClan

24 Paint Roller - Kirby Canvas Curse

Very annoying on level 3

25 Lololo and Lalala - Kirby Dream Land

This time they use gordo and they are much faster

26 Grand Doomer - Kirby's Return to Dreamland

I remember the first time I played this guy I struggled so much and then the second time it only took about two tries

My god when I was playing with my friend when I died the 100th time I got king dedede I like goku my power level was over 9000

Yea its really hard but so epic from the music to the final cut

I never got passed him, but my sister did

27 King Dedede - Kirby's Dreamland

The test to see if you have the skill required to save Dreamland for the very first time. You can technically win without taking damage, as long as you dodge all of King Dedede's attacks by watching him carefully.

You have to beat him fast in a few second

28 Acro - Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

This guy annoyed me. I'm not even a fan of water bosses to begin with... - Garythesnail

Took me a month to beat this guy.i did beat him later on though.i like orcas but this one just HATES me!

29 Dark Meta Knight's Revenge - Kirby: Triple Deluxe

God, he is so hard. He uses a ton of Meta Knight's attacks and he can GUARD! Plus, he has 2 phases, and in the 2nd phase he has 3 of himself!

I struggled so much on him!

He’s just too quick


30 Queen Sectonia - Kirby: Triple Deluxe Queen Sectonia - Kirby: Triple Deluxe

She will NOT die. She can easily get rid of your ability and the fact that she flies around means that she isn't easy to hit. She appears in true arena, and you don't always get your health back to the next phase. Not to mention that the only way to defeat her is with Hypernova. That shows a lot of power, and the fact that she can't be taken out by Spark so easily, which was slightly nerfed, shows how difficult of a boss this is.

She is tricky, and creepy! But it's rewarding when you finally end up killing her

She's not hard to me - TheKirbyCreeper999

Just don't stand on the giant gemstone when she smashes it.

31 President Haltmann - Kirby Planet Robobot

Very hard boss. Although this might be 32 on this list at the time I wrote this, it barely loses any health, deals a lot of damage, and jumps around a lot, making it hard to even HIT him. Usually, with this boss. I stay with no abilities at all.

32 Mega Titan - Kirby and the Amazing Mirror

He's actually fairly easy, but if you actually use an ability he's much harder.

Why can't I dodge his hands!

Use Spark, guys.

33 Shadow Kirby - Kirby: Triple Deluxe

He is extremely difficult! In Kirby fighters very hard mode fighter copy ability it took at least 30 minutes to defeat him!

Really depends for this one. On difficulty hard and very hard he is almost impossible to beat.

34 Heavy Lobster - Kirby Super Star Ultra

Pretty easy-especially with paint.

35 Pyribbit DX - Kirby Triple Deluxe


But guys that death was violent even for Kirby. You can hear the moment that its body was crushed by those boulders... - Darktail_of_FireClan

Vicious death, I like him

36 Computer Virus - Kirby Super Star

Very esea

37 Whispy Woods - Kirby's Dream Land Whispy Woods - Kirby's Dream Land

Oh man! This is the 2nd hardest boss after waddle dee!

A stupid person put him on here! He's the easiest boss in the game!

He's so easy put him number 79

Hardest Boss Ever. - CNSucksNow

38 Hot Wings - Kirby's Epic Yarn

Uhhh You know you can't Die In the game Right?

That has absolutely nothing to do with the difficulty of the game's bosses. - Darktail_of_FireClan

It starts out easy but after the first time you hit her it becomes RIDICULOUS. The attacks are impossible to dodge because when she shoots an embird and you grab it, another one hits U. All the other bosses ( fangora, squashini, capamari, meta knight, and yin yarn ) are all easy and hot wings is the SECOND BOSS. MOST RIDICULOUSLY HARD BOSS IN KIRBYS EPIC YARN - rexprice4

39 Landia EX - Kirby Return To Dreamland

I loved this boss though he had an easy-jump on pattern to beat him

40 Kracko Jr - Kirby's Dreamland Extra Game
41 Hooplagoon - Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

His third and final form are really hard! :(

Diza vary herd bos it tak mevery lang to bet schlong

42 Magolor and Lor - Kirby's Return to Dream Land

This guy (as well as all of the Galaga-like area before it) is really tough to beat! I had never had a game over in a Kirby game before this part! And I had three game-overs!

Defeated him. MULTIPLE TIMES.

43 Shadow Dedede - Kirby: Triple Deluxe

I have defeated him as King Dedede in Dededetour but the weirdest part in the second phase is that when he goes into the background, his stomach shoots small dark stuff and THEN he goes into he foreground, his stomach shoots out BIG stuff out.

44 Galacta Knight - Kirby Planet Robobot

He was the one,who made my health lost to half. It's the 2nd hardest boss I ever fought.

45 Whispy Woods - Kirby's Dreamland Extra Game Whispy Woods - Kirby's Dreamland Extra Game
46 King Dedede - Kirby's Dreamland Extra Game
47 Landia EX - Team Kirby Clash
48 Kaboola - Kirby's Dream Land Extra

She is pretty hard... annoying in the true arena though... - Darktail_of_FireClan

Trust me. For how big your hitbox is and for how much Kabula shoots at you, this bullcrap qualifies for bullet hell.

With only one hit point, it's even harder to dodge the cannonballs while your Game Boy is sweating out of your hands,

49 Coily Rattler - Kirby Triple Deluxe

You can only hit his head. On my planet, that qualifies as hard.

It took me more tries on this boss than on soul of sectonia and queen sectonia.

50 Pyribbit - Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Will you just come to the foreground for 3 seconds?! - Garythesnail

This guy was so hard!

Something about this guy reminds me of crocomire but I don't know what it is. - Darktail_of_FireClan
